Format: Paperback
..."Big Bucks Selling Your Photography" was not at all what I expected from the title. However don't get hung up on that! The subtitle on this fourth edition nails the book contents. "A Complete Photo Business Package for all Photographers" is a more apt title and this book does deliver that.

This book is geared towards anyone who is thinking of getting into photography as a full-time business but knows nothing about this business. If you have been researching photography as a business for some time a lot of this material will be familiar. If you are successful in the photography business you are already applying the contents of this book. For the rest of you contemplating photography as a business this book may change your mind. However, if you seriously want to consider this field of business then read the book.

If you want to go to the meat of "Big Bucks", marketing and selling your photos, start at chapter 9 and finish the book out. More importantly though not as exciting to read (Lawyers, IRS and CPAs! Oh my!), the first part of the book covers the back-end of the business. Cliff Hollenbeck, like most photographers, is not a CPA nor a Lawyer. He's not a Marketing Agent nor a Stock Agent. He's a successful photographer! Therefore you're not going to find much depth on these subjects, but the subjects are covered and Cliff tells you where to find the expertise.

If I were to summarize "Big Bucks" in one line it would be - Familiarize yourself with the whole business, concentrate on producing images and your creativity, and leave the business side to the experts.

We'll have to wait and see if the recession of 2008-2009 changes all the paradigms of marketing and selling photography. None of us know that yet. But this book, published in 2007 delivers straightforward advice that can be useful to professional photographers at every level.

Here's the deal: This is the first book I've seen from Amherst Media that isn't chocked full of color photographs. In fact there's not a photo in the entire book and that's quite okay with me. It leaves more space for a full set of business forms in the back and pages crammed full of advice on how to undertake doing the business side of photography.

With this book and a few solid books on technique you should be able to test the waters of the photography industry.

Cliff is from the advertising and editorial side so much of the book's content is aimed at these markets. The book is less useful to senior shooters and wedding shooters.

All in all, a good reference guide for people running photo businesses for advertising clients.

As a professional photographer Cliff Hollenbeck"s Big Bucks book was instrumental in refocusing my career. While so many people focus on the photographs, Cliff's book was about an even more critical aspect of successful photography, the business of photography. He gives you a step by step outline if you want to sell your photographs for a PROFIT. He covers Business administration, the all important business plan, covering your butt in regards to liability and copyright and provides the forms that photo buyers expect i.e. model releases and delivery memos. His latest version covers the important aspects of using a computer in a modern photography business. As marketing is critical if you want customers, he covers all the options available today. If you have someone who has expressed they want to work as a professional photographer give them this book first and they may have a chance in this highly competitive field.

I thought the book was very helpful and a great eye opener to new photographers setting up a photography business. It really does drive point the fact that this is a BUSINESS first. I think the information was usefull and informative. I don't like the title though, this is a VERY difficult industry right now so to imply that anyone can make "Big Bucks" is a disservice. There is money to be made, but it takes a lot of work and business senese. Its a small think but reminds me of the mindset of the eightys and early ninetys..not the current state of the industry.
